, john heilemann. willie is coming in the room right now. >> willie sort of sauntering in. >> he is. wow! got a lot of presidential polls to get to, and we will. >> i tell you what, important ones that really narrow the focus of this race. >> right. first we're going to start with the aftermath of sandy. the united states pledging quick relief for the millions of victims of the hurricanes. today president obama is scheduling to arrive in atlantic city to survey the damage alongside governor chris christie. this morning the associated press reports the storm killed at least 50 people. there are more than 8.2 million households still without power across 17 states. and many of the outages could last beyond election day. between damage to property and the economy, the total impact expected to reach a staggering $50 billion. the damage is perhaps nowhere worse than the coastline of new jersey where sandy came ashore laying waste to an amusement park and historic boardwalk at seaside heights. as for the airports, jfk, newark, they're expected to resume limited service this morning. the same c
and msnbc political analyst, john heilemann and pulitzer prize-winning historian, jon meacham. good to have you on the show this morning. we will talk politics soon. >> thank you, ma'am. >> actually, the candidates are jumping back into the fray. full campaign mode again. and we have an endorsement by mayor michael bloomberg to talk about. >> is that what that was? >> the word disappointing and endorsement. >> let's just leave it there. >> passive aggressive endorsement. >> it was. it was passive aggressive. we also have, later in the show, the jobs numbers coming up. and i do think that will be interesting metric. >> are we going to -- i wondered if we're going to allow these two wardrobe decisions to go unnoticed. the three-piece. who's it homage to? >> deutsche. >> donny. >> and bob novak. >> straight from the program to the campaign trail. >> this is your campaign gear? >> garb. >> inside pockets. >> he's not wearing sweats, though. >> is it a fleece sweater or a sweater sweater? >> you guys obviously are in the part of the city without power. no problem. >> got dressed in the dark. >>
against hillary and had the war issue against her, beat her on the war issue, took on john mccain when he was really beaten down by then. and here he is facing romney who is a very tough opponent. so this is going to be a close election. they're somewhat equally matched. like one of those swords and sandals movies, though, each guy has a different weapon. they don't have the same tool kit. but one thing obama has in his tool kit, i'll go back to, is hope. you don't run for president with the name of barack hussein obama without hope. i talked to him recently at the al smith dinner, i can't say what he said, but the guy has confidence, i'll tell you that. he has confidence. something tells him he wins. i don't know what it is. it may be delusion narrary, but does have that confidence. he tells us to be hopeful, maybe this is the week he's got to have hope. like a pitcher in the seventh inning two runs back and has to put everybody out for the next three innings but has to hope the batters will come through and give him some bat. he has to hope, just like the pitcher in the seventh inning.
. >> it's worth repeating the debate. john king asked if disaster relief would be better handled by the states. quote, absolutely. any time you have occasion to send it back to the states, that's the right direction. yesterday changing his story a bit. >> yeah. you know, when we screwed up in newspapers, we would call them clarifications, not corrections. this has taken them 48 hours to come up with a statement of the status quo. states take the lead. fema gets the funding it needs. it wasn't just that back in the debate he said states should take the lead on everything. he said that borrowing money for fema was immoral. it was a moral issue. that that question was of great immoral value to him in looking after hurricane victims. and maybe that's one of the reasons why if you look at the poll numbers, we just got some interesting poll numbers from "the washington post" yesterday, 78% of americans approve of the president's handling. of this disaster. and it's about half that level for mitt romney. in a very close election. when you've got an incumbent getting 78% approval for any
these kind of dynamics and histrionics and emotion at the end. i agree with what john heilemann said last week about ohio. without autos, without auto manufacturing, it would be very hard to see how the obama team can continue to have excitement and emotional momentum on their side in ohio. it could very well be that the car situation and the help that this administration provided could be the stonewall. however, you look at this momentum, and mike, you follow campaigns. you follow political efforts. and when you have this kind of momentum heading into the final week, it's got to be a good feeling for the romney campaign as they look at the last eight days of where they are. >> you know, usually in campaigns, joe, you know this better than any of us sitting here because you've been on the ballot. you get an indication four, five days out that something has tipped within one campaign or another. and it's set in motion. and so you sort of know who the winner will be. that's not the case this year. i fall back on something that you keep hearing repeatedly when you're out there talking with p
